Centro is proud to announce that we finalized the acquisition of Eagle Valve Solutions of Memphis on April 1. Mike Milligan the founder of Eagle Valve has agreed to join Centro in the role of Business Development Manager of the Valve, Actuation & Engineered Products division at Centro. Stuart White, the Division Sales Manager of the Valve, Actuation & Engineered Products division will work with Mike during 2022 to ensure a smooth transition when Stuart retires later this year. In 2021, the Valve division was the largest division at Centro, and we are confident that the addition of three new vendors from Eagle Valve and having Mike Milligan join our sales management team, will keep our Valve division growing at a rapid pace.
